Armand Russell: "Theme and Fantasia"

November 7, 2015

Theme and Fantasia

Armand Russell

Born June 23, 1932, Seattle, Washington

Instrumentation: Symphonic Band

Duration: 8 minutes

Composed: 1950


The composer writes, “Theme and Fantasia is based on a simple and tranquil theme. The fantasia consists of a series of variant sections evolving from this main theme. In the first section, the variation is given to the high solo brass. In the sections following, the music becomes successively aggressive, vigorous, and expressive until the broad climactic ending is reached.”
